because you told me...


Because you told me something,
very secret,
about yourself,
i can no longer love you,
like I did,
because you were opened,
i didn't even have to knock on your life's door,
but now i can never do things,
that i once though,
i would,
because you shared a story,
of your distant past,
i related it to someone,
when i saw him last,
and i don't want to know it,
not at all,
because of the story,
that i never saw.

    I could very much relate to this piece.
    Glad you are safe guarding yourself, obviously what ever the story was must not have been a good one, and revealed something harmful.
    I'm glad that the truth came out, and you were able to heed the warning.
    We are the company we keep.
    Great poem. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
